Witches Brew Altered Journal

I am honored to be a guest designer today for Susan at Susana's Scrappin Corner.  I first met Susan during her birthday blog hop!!  I have been in a composition book altering mood lately and decided to make a Witch one!!!

I started out with a blank book that I found at Target.  Right now they are on clearance!!
I took 2 matching Halloween papers and traced the front and back covers on them and cut them out. 
I used my ATG gun to adhere the paper to the front and back.
I smoothed out the paper with my hand.
I used my new Martha Stewart punch to create this spiderweb border strip.  I am loving this punch!
After the first punch, you just line up the pieces on the side and punch again.

I cut a strip of orange paper and wrapped the spider webs around the ends and glued them down.
Then I glued down the orange strip to the side of the cover.

I got out my Gypsy and found this witch and saying on Happy Hauntings.  I cut them out in black cardstock.

I always save the negative paper to use as a template.

Here are the cuts.  I run the words through my Xyron to make them sticky.

Then I put the negative piece down where I want my cuts to go.

I put the words in one at a time.
I slowly pull away the paper.
I glued down the witch and put a little purple stickles on the brim of her hat.
A little black and white twine finish the cover.
Thanks for having me over to play today Susan!!!
